Just the one tournament this year or will there be qualifiers? Also, are there any plans to organize casual playing?
I care not how many minions I lose,

I also wish this would happen, as do all of us. However, I'm quite sure it would be very expensive to get full coverage of a tournament.

Im not seeing Mage Wars/Arcane Wonders anywhere on the events list for GenCon2014. Is it just not an official GenCon event or what is the deal?

I'm going to start signing up for events this weekend. I would like Mage Wars to be included in the list, but if they aren't posted soon, I might not be able to join in the fun.

PLEASE get them on the schedule ASAP!

I saw that it was finally listed last night. Unfortunately, I also learned that I can't drop events until GenCon starts now to make room for the tournament, so I'm just hoping that there will be an opening left....

It would have been nice to have at least known the time slot(s) to plan to keep open prior to GenCon opening to event sign-ups. Maybe next year you can tell us that much in advance, at least.

Looking at all the events it would seem that Saturday should be like Friday's event as they have 32 seats listed.  Not sure it should have been invite only, would have thought the finals on Sunday would be the only invite only as it states it is for the finalists from day one and two.  Someone should ask Patrick to clarify this, I would hate for Saturday to have no participants.

Does each round start at 4pm or end at 4pm? Also what's the entry fee?
